I know, I know...everyone knows about Hunter Boots...blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda whatevs.
Ok, this is for those of you who don't yet actually have a pair.
What is spring without rain boots? Yes, my first Black Shoes for Spring was rain shoes...but "April showers" anybody? Yes, they are called that for a reason. Spring is just wet. (thank you, says my garden) And some of you lucky ducks may be in perma-warm weather but here outside DC, we most certainly are not. I think there was a chance of snow in the rain last night...and maybe even tonight or Friday. And sometimes it's just too wet for shoes, you want serious coverage...you want RAIN BOOTS!
But if you can grab a pair of cute $29.99 boots from Target, why should you bother with spending the extra bucks on Hunters? I'm not going to denigrate fun rain boots...I have a cute pair of hot pink Eprit ones that never fail to garner compliments BUT....they aren't Hunters.
What makes Hunters so special? No, not Kate Moss wearing them to Glastonbury way back when. Although that certainly upped the glamour of the brand.
Then the navy Quilted Double Breasted Puffer, which I nabbed a few weeks ago on the sale racks, I kinda liked it for $158 but wasn't willing to pay the full price but I really loved it for $60. And it has a hood!! And see...the navy totally works with the black pants & boots. Yep, I think this jacket will see a lot of action this spring.
